The power suit has been dominating runway trends for a few seasons. And, this year, the style is holding its own. Now, if you’ve spent most of your career trying to escape the stuffiness of a suit, there’s no need to worry. The 2018 power suit is bold and fun. And, more importantly, no matter your style, there is a trouser suit that’ll make you feel powerful and look glamorous.
What I’m Wearing:
I wore this trouser suit on Valentine’s Day in lieu of a dress, and it was a sharp look. By the way, the suit is currently 40% off (shop the jacket on sale here and the pants here). I was initially drawn to the set because of its chic black and white stripes. When I tried it on, though, I discovered so many more features I loved.
Both the jacket and pants are made of a super lightweight fabric that feels soft and smooth. This suit is far from stuffy.
The pants have a flattering high waist and a silhouette that perfectly contours (without clinging) curves. Just so you know, I always size up in pants from at this store. For reference, I’m wearing the jacket in a small and the pants in a size 8.
I was hesitant about the ruched sleeves on the blazer because that feature eliminates the option of wearing the sleeves long. But, I usually wear my sleeves rolled up anyway because it’s such a hip styling. Besides, the overall relaxed vibe of this blazer was too fresh and fashion-forward to pass on it.
What I also love about this set is the versatility it brings to my overall wardrobe. I’m already imagining the many outfits I can create using the separates. Stay tuned for those looks. In the meantime, check out all the ways I rocked one blazer in this post.
